David Roberts o sovragu angleškega jezika:
Today, consumers can also generate electricity — they can be producer/consumers, or “prosumers,” as people who hate the English language call them.

b. o svoji ženi:
Harri Turunen:
No, you misunderstood the house example. Obviously changing it back to a previous state is not beneficial, as it is less satisfying than the current one.
b.:
Obviously, you have not met my wife :).

Davida sodobna angleščina močno moti:
The software running all this is called SolControl, which the user can control through an app that “gamifies” (barf) energy savings.

Ramez Naam o Benu Carsonu:
I can’t point to the part of my brain that is “good at neurosurgery”, operate on it, and by repeating the procedure make myself the greatest neurosurgeon that has ever lived. Ben Carson tried that, and look what happened to him.

nsmb, kako stvari stoje v svetu testov:
preberi vse, tole je samo za prigrizek:
Negativity?
No one likes a whiner, especially the mountain bike industry. So what happens when you find something less than exemplary about a product you are testing? There’s a few options:
1. Compliment sandwich
So you found something that grinds your gears about the bike but you don’t want to be the squeaky link (squeaky links don’t get the oil, they get ignored, put in the corner, or chopped). Remember that although you tell your mother that you’re a real, big boy journalist, deep down you know you’re just here to lube the industry, so wrap the less-than-glowing parts of your review between or around some really effusive positives. Example: if you don’t like the handling/ suspension/ the build quality/ parts spec, then just quickly gloss over that fact with a cursory mention, then cover your tracks with an Although, But, or However. “I thought the tire choice was less than ideal for the trails we used on our test track BUT the attention to detail of BRAND-X to spec a silver-coloured bottle cage on production models was an inspired decision that shows they really get it.”

Jonas o Leninu:
Kdaj nam bo dovolj? Zakaj ne gremo takoj protestirat na ulice! Aja, sej smo že šli, na Wall Street in tja pred borzo na Bavarcu, a nismo? Oziroma, so šli. Tretja oseba. Zame je bilo premrzlo, pa brez zamere. Sebe si tako ali tako predstavljam bolj kot guruja, kot pa aktivista. Oficirja revolucije, ne pešaka. “Možgani morajo bit na toplem”, je rekel že Lenin, citat je iz wikipedije. Vem, ker sem ga sam dodal.

Jonas o teflonu:
Ko so šli Američani na luno, so nam mulcem v šoli potem še dolga leta učitelji razlagali, da je bilo drago, ampak ne zaman. Da so se znanstveniki zraven toliko novega naučili, da je ves svet profitiral od novih izumov in pogruntavščin, ki jih zdaj vsi uporabljamo. Recimo teflon, da se ne prime. Ob vrnitvi ob atmosfero bi se astronavti scvrli, če ne bi znanstveniki na hitro v nekaj mesecih izumili posebnega zunanjega premaza, odpornega na megavročino. Do takrat še ni obstajal, ker se ga ni potrebovalo in so ga na hitro izumili. Zdaj pa lahko na njem tudi navadni smrtniki jajčka cvremo, ne da bi se zapekla. Res vesoljska tehnologija, tale teflon.
Bogme, zmeraj je bil teflon. Drugega primera za iznajdbo iz vesolja še v življenju nisem slišal, tako, da bi običajen človek kaj od nje imel. Nadaljuj z branjem “Zakaj berem bloge 9”

Jonas o žganju:
Jonas o žganju:
Tiste sorte knjiga, ki ti jo denimo posodi kolegica tvoje frišno bivše, ki ti je baš strla srce. Vsaj v mojem primeru je bilo tako. Z besedami “meni je pomagala” mi jo je položila v roke in s toplim stiskom roke in z globokim sočutnim pogledom, da mi je bilo že tisti trenutek lažje pri duši, ker sem vedel, da se bova žgala čez kak teden, ko bom imel izgovor za obisk, lej, knjigo sem prinesel in na bivšo uspešno pozabil.

clander o zaporih:
In fact, most white people would love to be locked up for their beliefs provided that they could go to a jail with private toilets, plenty of books and no rape.

bikesnob o investicijskih bankirjih:
If any one of my seventeen children expressed an interest in becoming a professional bike racer I’d steer them towards any number of more honorable professions. Weed dealing, fetish pornography, investment banking…I’d proudly stand around the water cooler boasting that they’d chosen any of those career paths over professional bike racing.

Berem Alešev blog o etapni dirki v istri, kjer omenja svojega sotrpina, ga kliknem in berem. Se ga spomnim še od par let nazaj, alpinistični blog. Prdimon ima zelo slabo mentalno moč, takoj ko mu je v klanec težko, šalta v lažjo (nekateri se izgovarjamo na kolena) in si je zato ubodel ss, ki mu tega ne omogoča. OK. Kar me je pa res presenetilo je to, da po drugi strani je pa zelo načelen in nikoli ne krade glasbe in filmov s spleta. V bistvu me je vrglo na rit. Nisem sam v tej načelnosti.
